ABC’s of Creating an Attitude About Your Personal Brand: Part II

October 29, 2009

My friend Mary Jo Asmus of Aspire Collaborative Services watched my video yesterday on the ABC’s of Creating an Attitude About Your Personal Brand and suggested that I talk about how I applied the principles to my own personal brand.  I made this video in response to her much appreciated suggestion.

I am really enjoying making these videos.  I am finding that some things are easier and more enjoyable to talk about than they are to write about.  Recording outside is a real challenge because of lighting and background noise, but I really enjoy showing you some of the different views of Reno.

I have a LOT left to learn both about personal branding and about making videos, so your comments and suggestions for improvement are welcome and appreciated!

  1. Thanks Bret for the great response to my inquiry and suggestion. What this does for me is make the implicit, explicit and because I’ve been following your blog and been able to get to know you a bit, it illustrates well what you are achieving. Thanks! I hope your other readers enjoy it as much as I have.

    I also hope its warmed up in Reno!

    Thanks for the suggestion, MJ. It was a good exercise for me to think through how it applies to me, especially with respect to cognition and affect. I actually love the cool weather here but it does make it more of a challenge to record a video. Thanks! Bret

    Thanks for sharing your personal ABC’s for creating an attitude about your own personal brand. You have done a very good job of creating a brand that encompasses all of the points that you outlined. You have definately established credibility as someone who is an informed source of information. You have created an atmosphere that is comfortable, welcoming and engaging. You are quick to respond to comments and suggestions which makes your followers feel valued. The consistancy and frequency with which you tend to your brand has built trust as well.
